The top-3 quarterbacks, Dennis Dixon, Brady Leaf and Nathan Costa rotated snaps and had a good afternoon, the Duck defenders made up more ground from a tough outing yesterday.
There was no contact in the session as the players were dressed in helmets, jerseys and shorts but there were some good efforts on several plays. Derrick Jones continued to make improvements during the session. Jones showed his foot speed on one particular 1-on-1 drill against Willie Glasper by catching the ball and putting on a big burst of speed to elude the defender.
The Ducks also worked on punting with Josh Syria showing the biggest leg, while back up quarterback Justin Roper also taking some snaps and booting the ball away with his left foot.
Aaron Pflugrad continues to be impressive in both punt returns and receiving. The sure-handed receiver catches nearly everything thrown his way.
Oregon will travel off-site tomorrow and hold a close practice that neither the public nor the media will be allowed to attend.
The Ducks open the season on September 1st at Autzen Stadium against Houston with kickoff scheduled for 12:30 p.m.
